...stunningly beautiful. At once rich yet weightless...covers every inch of the palate...seemingly endless layers of aromas and flavors...exceptional elegance and finesse... fabulous wine to treasure between the ages of ten and twenty-plus.
...Brooding yet precise aromas of blueberry, licorice, graphite minerality and clove oil. Very lush...terrific inner-mouth energy giving this powerful wine noteworthy elegance. The serious tannins are nicely harmonious...
Shows a Bordeaux-like restraint, with well-built, slow-to-open flavors of dried currant, herb, cedar, pencil lead and tobacco leaf. Gripping tannins.
